Hoppin By......


     Just wanted to stop by and wish all of you Leap Day babies, a happy day!  This little froggie has to be one of the very first stamps I bought.  We will not talk about how many years ago that was.  He is from Alias, Smith, and Rowe Stamp Co, Las Vegas.  I used all scraps from my bin on a white card base.  I even drug out my tub of letter stamps for the sentiments.  Gosh, I had to blow off the dust!  My embellishments are olive pearls, bakers twine, and butterfly punches from MS.  Coloring was done with Copic Markers.  Oh, I can't forget the K&Co sticky paper lace I added.

     That is it for me this afternoon.  I should be working on wedding chores, but it is pouring rain by the buckets, and I can't get motivated.  I was thinking that making a pot of PA Dutch Potato Soup would be more productive.  Yum!  Now mind you, I am not complaining about the rain, as it is snowing not too far north of me.  Enjoy!

     BTW, do you watch American Idol?  Who do you like so far?

Yes, I watch Idol, and I was floored the first time I saw Phil perform! I thought he was a clone of Dave Matthews, and last night Randy said the same thing! I like Reed too, and after seeing Deandre last night, WOW!!! I'm a fan of all 3 of them! Who do YOU like?

Mary Anne,
Very cute frog, love how you colored it. Great to use up all those things we forgot we had. LOL I knew I had a small set of words that are meant to be encouragement for kids I looked and looked couldn't find them. I've been cleaning and I found them. LOL
